Availability: In stock

Combine creativity, aesthetics and practicality in your very own garden with an inspired mix of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers.

This beautifully illustrated book gives practical information on everything you need to know to design and plant an ornamental edible garden, including advice on laying pathways and edgings, building raised beds, erecting plant supports, hedging and enclosures, how to espalier, as well as plans for traditional ground layouts for any garden size or shape, and much, much more.

A special section is devoted to the creation of tiny-space and ‘no-soil’ potagers, and a range of vegetables and dwarf fruit tree varieties suitable for container and smaller plantings is discussed.

Essential horticultural practices such as crop rotation, green manures, composting and continuity of produce are presented, together with companion planting and organic management.
